#362: Emily Ratajkowski: Feminism, Sexuality & Power Ctrl Alt Delete

    • Technology

Hello, my guest today is Emily Ratajkowski, a model, actress, entrepreneur, and writer. She has starred in David Fincher's Gone Girl, among other films and has appeared on the covers of multiple magazines and walked the runway for numerous high fashion brands. Her 2020 essay for New York magazine, "Buying Myself Back," garnered over one million views within twenty-four hours and was the magazine's most-read piece of the year. My Body is her first book, and it’s out now, which we discuss the book in this episode. If you enjoyed her piece for New York magazine, you will absolutely love the book. It explores feminism, sexuality, power, men's treatment of women and women's rationalisations. These essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski's life while investigating the culture we live in and its obsession with and contempt for women's sexuality and the dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the grey areas when it comes to discussing such topics. Hope you enjoy this conversation!
